This is a libtool problem; it will affect anything using libtool-1.4.
Please take it up with the libtool people.  (Alexander Olivia said
there was some sort of patch for this floating around, but I don't
think had much time to work on libtool recently.)

For the Red Hat GTK+-1.3.x RPMS, we have a hack in the SRPM to remove
the relinking from the libtool used to build.
